How do non-contact sensors work, and what benefits do they offer to machine builders?

Depending on the intended purpose, sensors operate based on various principles such as conductivity, pressure, acceleration, or chemical composition. This blog focuses on non-contact sensors, exploring what makes this group special, how they work, and what specific advantages they provide.

Application example: terrain gradient measurment

In Vicenza, the AGCO production site hosts the manufacturing facility for all Harvesting Machines belonging to the Group, including Fendt, Massey Ferguson, and Valtra. One of the key components utilized in the threshing machines is the DIS Sensors Dynamic Inclinometer with J1939 interface.

Monitoring Vehicle Stacker Stability with Tilt Switches

As Australia’s population continues to grow urban density is likely to increase. This means that developers need to employ smart technology solutions to optimize the use of limited space. New homes and apartment buildings are starting to feature a stacked parking system to make the most of garage space.

Inclino sensors in aerial platform for rail infrastructure

To ensure the safety of its rail-infra aerial platforms, Koerts Techniek equips its machines with dynamic inclinometers from DIS. In real time, these sensors accurately measure the angle of the arm that supports the work platform.

Application example: solar tracker (photovoltaic)

Solar power plants are essential to achieving the transition to renewable energy. A PV (photovoltaic) panel provides maximum yield when the sunlight strikes the panel at a normal angle (90 degrees).

Application example: wind turbine deflection monitoring

Wind turbines will increasingly undergo deflection as wind speeds increase. This is normal, and the tower, rotor and blades can sustain these forces without harm, up to a certain limit. Above this limit, the turbine has to be fixated (i.e. shut down) in order to prevent excessive strain on the rotor, damage to the tower and blades, and dangerous situations.

Application example: crane boom max. angle monitoring

Crane booms (e.g. truck-mounted) are often subject to movement restrictions due to the limitations of the mechanical design and hydraulic system.

Application example: truck levelling

Trucks with platform lifts, crains and concrete pumps have to be proper levelled before coming to action. A two-axis inclinometer (being the digital sprit level meter) mounted on the chassis gives the control unit the exact input to hydraulically level the truck on a safe and efficient way.

Application example: concrete pump arm position feedback

Concrete pump wagons consists of up to 5-pieced arms. The control-unit needs to know the exact position of each arm-part in order to control the right position of the concrete outlet by i.e. a joystick. When inclinometers are mounted on each arm-part the control unit can calculate the exact position of the concrete outlet. Moreover, if a certain movement is required (initiated by the joystick), the control unit knows which hydraulic cylinder or combination of cylinders should be activated.
